MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has warned Filipino workers in Hong Kong against dealing with a recruitment agency offering jobs in Canada.
POEA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said the Canada jobs offered by Yamsuan and Associates Overseas Employment Services Ltd./Pacific Management Services Ltd. are nonexistent.
He advised applicants to be more vigilant and discerning in dealing with recruitment firms.
“Scammers with tempting job offers are out there, waiting to pound on unsuspecting applicants who are willing to part with their hard-earned money for a chance to work overseas,” Cacdac said.
Citing a report from the Department of Foreign Affair’s Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers’ Affairs (OUMWA), Cacdac said Yamsuan and Associates has been posting ads in English newspapers in Hong Kong targeting household service workers for supposed jobs in Canada.
“The advertisement says the agency can help them find work in Canada and invites them to an orientation in its office,” the OUMWA said.
